"Crazy AF" is the sixth single recorded by In Real Life, released through Hollywood Records on March 22, 2019.[1] In Real Life performed a bit of the song on The Adam Bomb Show.[2] A few clips of the single were also revealed in their YouTube video, "IRL VLOGS: CRAZY Week" early in February 2019. In June 2019 it reached top 40 on pop radio.[3]

Background

The song was recorded in 2018.[4] Lyrically it tells the story of a possessive girlfriend that they can't help but fall in love with. The music video premiered on April 4, 2019.[5]

Like their single "How Badly", fans were chosen to listen to the unreleased music video at the time. In order to qualify, fans must have sent a video with the reason why they should be picked. Only twenty people could be selected, with Wednesday being the last day for entries (giving people four days) and were DM'd over Instagram if picked. On Saturday (March 9, 2019), they attended the event which included early previews of two songs, "She Do" being one of them.[6] It was mainly for Los Angeles Lifelines, due to expenses not being paid for but still open to everyone.

On March 10, 2019, In Real Life posted a snippet of the song and later it was available to pre-save on Spotify and Apple Music.[7][8] In celebration, fans tweeted with the hashtag #CrazyForIRL and the band made confessions under the tag #CrazyAFConfessional.

On March 21, 2019, the single premiered over 102.7 KIIS FM at nine[9] and was announced In Real Life will perform a free concert on March 23rd at the Universal CityWalk, debuting their song which parallels back to their first performance as a band with their debut single "Eyes Closed". When "Crazy AF" became available everywhere, there was a sale with all apparel 50% off for 24 hours over their official website.[10] At 9 P.M PST, In Real Life held a sweepstakes from March 23-25 eligible for fans who were legal residents in the United States and the District of Columbia. On March 25th, the band chose the winner but a day after announced who they were over an Instagram live.[11] Despite it being announced for one winner, over the live Drew stated that three people received emails.

Lyrics

Original

[Intro: Brady Tutton]
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You crazy as fuck
And I think I'm in love

[Verse 1: Conor Smith]
Look, alright
I wake up in the morning
Lipstick written on the wall
Baby have a good day
But you know you better call
Uh, yeah
Everything just the way she left it
She took my things right off the dresser
Replaced the photo of my ex that was hanging down the hall, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: Drew Ramos]
She's off, I know
But I like her wrong
I lost control, a long time ago

[Chorus: Brady Tutton and Drew Ramos]
And every time we play in the sheets
I wake up with her marks all on me
Call me crazy
But I love her crazy
The only kind of girl that's for me
She likes to mark her territory
Call me crazy
But I love her crazy, yeah

[Post-Chorus: Brady Tutton]
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You crazy as fuck
And I think I'm in love, haha

[Verse 2: Chance Perez and Sergio Calderon]
Shows up when she wants, won't call to say she's on her way
Checking through my phone every single time I step away, oh yeah
And every time that she cook me breakfast
She always hit me with the checklist
"Where you going? Which girls gonna be there? What time you coming home?"
Man, I don't know

[Pre-Chorus: Drew Ramos]
She's off, I know
But I like her wrong
I lost control, a long time ago

[Chorus: Brady Tutton and Drew Ramos]
And every time we play in the sheets
I wake up with her marks all on me
Call me crazy
But I love her crazy
The only kind of girl that's for me
She likes to mark her territory
Call me crazy
But I love her crazy, yeah
 
[Verse 3: Conor Smith]
Uh, look
Now this was back before I even knew a thing
Besides, you were the type I seen up on a movie screen
And even though it's hard to tell her that you got plans
She got a body that'll make a preacher say "Goddamn"
Haha, yeah
But through it all, I still love her the same
'Cause you appreciate the sun when it comes after the rain
Take the puddles and just wash away
Nah, I ain't making this up, girl, you crazy as fuck
But damn, I think I'm in love, ha

[Chorus: All]
And every time we play in the sheets (in the sheets)
I wake up with her marks all on me
Call me crazy
But I love her crazy (She kinda crazy, I think I love her)
The only kind of girl that's for me (Girl that's for me)
She likes to mark her territory
Call me crazy
But I love her crazy, yeah

[Post-Chorus: Brady Tutton and Drew Ramos]
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (No other girl for me)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You crazy as fuck
And I think I'm in love, haha
